Since I’m terrible of keeping track of dates, I completely missed the 8 year anniversary of the blog (which was in June). I started off reviewing Allagash White, which I loved (and still do to this day). The format has changed over the 8 years, but I never thought that when I started this 8 years ago that I would keep it up this long. Hopefully I keep it up for at least another 8 years.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Packed with bright tropical aromas and brilliant citrusy flavors, this unfiltered IPA wraps up with a pleasantly smooth finish.”
Random: This beer comes in at 42 IBUs.
The beer poured with a two finger, white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The beer poured with some floaties and was golden-yellow in color with a lot of carbonation and obviously, haziness. The nose started with a lot of citrus. I specifically picked up oranges, tangerines and tangelos. There wasn’t much on the tropical fruit front. The taste had a touch of yeast, but then went into lots and lots of citrus. The orange came through, quickly followed by tangerines and grapefruit. It had a lot of orange juice as well, but not a tropical fruit that I could find. The body was medium thickness with a lot of carbonation. It had a sticky finish with high carbonation. I picked up the pounder can for $1.92, which came to $.12 per ounce. This beer was pretty good and the price made this an absolutely steal. Give it a try, for sure.
